Great Italian food. We really enjoy the Salmon Pasta, The Veal chop Milanese and the Chicken Milanese. They also serve one of the best Cannoli's I have ever had. Always a great meal perfect for families with kids as well.

Always a good time at Giovanni's. The food is awesome, especially all the pasta dishes, even though ravioli and lasagna are my favorites. The pizzas are great, too. Service is always fast and friendly. Good for lunch or dinner!
